Festive Holiday Oatmeal with Cinnamon

December 6, 2013

The holiday season always requires a nutritious, filling yet not-too-heavy breakfast to keep us fueled through family visits and shopping sprees. I don’t know about you, but I always reach for a big bowl of oatmeal, and this creamy holiday oatmeal is perfect. Cooked with apple, walnut for protein, dried cranberries and warming spices, this oatmeal is good for your mind and your body!
